Savoury bariatric recipe – british onion, potato and turkey tortilla

Here is one of the most popular recipes I have posted on my website…so much so people post pics of it on their own social networking sites!

It’s an onion and potato tortilla boosted with a little thinly-sliced cooked turkey (for added protein)) that is wonderful hot or cold and is just as good for vegetarians… just leave out the turkey and add a little grated cheese instead.

All it needs is a little salad for a main meal or packed lunch box… and equally good for picnic food. Equally easy on the purse-strings it’s a good mid-week or end-of-the-month dish.
